    Thank you, I tend to get jealous of you European folks with your proper mountains, but the Appalachians have their moments.

    One other B&W I just finished:

    Having so many 3000 meter mountains can be pretty annoying too ... ;)

    If you want tall mountains, you don't have to cross the pond. Just head West to the Rockies, the Sierra Nevadas, and the Cascades. :)

    However, having grown up in the Appalachians and the Smokies, I agree that that part of the country can also be gorgeous.

    (BTW, I'm not minimizing the beauty of the European mountains, as I love that scenery also, especially the Berner Oberland and Lugano areas in Switzerland. I'm just saying that there are stunningly beautiful high mountain areas to which you can drive.)

    Yes, I spent seven of my formative years in Switzerland, and the Alps are certainly majestic, but the Cacades are nothing to sniff at.

    Couple of beauties there. The mountain looks like it's floating in the 2nd pic.
